Coming Together: Culturally Inspired Creation
Thursday, May 5, 2022
10 a.m.-7 p.m.
Lynn Mecklenburg Textile Gallery, Nancy Nicholas Hall
This exhibition is a collaboration between traditional textile artisan designers in the Kutch district in northwest India and students at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Together, students learn textile traditions from India through their artisan designer partners and objects in the Helen Louise Allen Textile Collection. Choosing an object in the Collection as inspiration, students and artisan collaborators co-designed scarves for the contemporary market.
